Hilary Seligman, MD, MAS is Professor at the University of California San Francisco with appointments in the Departments of Medicine and of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

Dr. Seligman is an expert in food insecurity and its health implications across the life course. Her policy and advocacy expertise focus on federal nutrition programs (particularly SNAP), food banking and the charitable food network, hunger policy, food affordability and access, and income-related drivers of food choice. She directs the Food Policy, Health, and Hunger Research Program at UCSF’s Center for Vulnerable Populations and the CDC’s Nutrition and Obesity Policy, Research and Evaluation Network (NOPREN). She also co-directs UCSF's IMPACT Program (part of our Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute), which aims to influence real-world decision-makers to use data and science to inform their work. IMPACT provides UCSF faculty and staff with resources and training in collaborating with a broad range of stakeholders to quicken the adoption of evidence-informed policies in healthcare, government, industry, and other sectors.

Dr. Seligman founded EatSF, a healthy foods voucher program for low-income residents of San Francisco (www.eatsfvoucher.org). Outside of San Francisco, EatSF is known as Vouchers for Veggies.

Dr. Seligman directs the National Clinician Scholars Program at UCSF, School of Medicine. NCSP aims to offer unparalleled training for clinicians as change agents driving policy-relevant research and partnerships to improve health and health care. The goal of the program is to cultivate health equity, eliminate health disparities, invent new models of care, and achieve higher quality health care at lower cost by training nurse and physician researchers who work as leaders and collaborators embedded in communities, healthcare systems, government, foundations, and think tanks in the United States and around the world (https://nationalcsp.org/).

Dr. Seligman serves on the Board of Directors for the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank. She previously served on the Board of the California Food Policy Advocates and as a member of the Food Security Task Force for the City and County of San Francisco. She is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians.
